John Sotiropoulos wins Rd1 of 2007 Greek Nats

John Sotiropoulos

Defending Greek National Champion John Sotiropoulos has started this year where he left off last year by taking the win in round 1 of the Greek 1/8th scale Nationals held at the Arena Racing circuit. The Serpent driver topped the timing sheets after qualifying and was able to convert that position into a win in the main final despite a problem in the race that dropped him back a lap on the leader. Sotiropoulos finished 1 lap ahead of Kyosho racer Vagelis Totomis who finished 2nd with another Serpent racer Mimis Papadopoulos in 3rd.

In the final Sotiropoulos was having a good battle with Kyosho driver Totomis but an error during his first pit stop saw the Serpent driver drop a full lap. Rejoining the race the defending Champion chased down leader Totomis and with 2 minutes of the 30 minute final remaining retook the lead.
